So I happened upon a Barney Oliver Amp. It was being sold by a former HP employee. I picked it up, replaced a transistor, cap, and resistor and Magic! I have a Pioneer PL-61 with a V-15 III cart, the first 10 seconds on any lp is silent. It is hooked up to some Snells and JBLs ( they are in series to achieve 8 ohms). Nice sound without many adjustments, just some filter choices... I have heard praise, and I have heard criticism (from a former Marantz engineer). I love it. Specs are great, Sound is magical... Anyone else have one of these with opinions?
